When I start driving my steering is turning left and right without turning I don't know what is the problem please can you tell me

My car has 21 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hello, thanks for writing in about your 1997 Nissan Maxima. From what you’ve described you should have the front tires checked. One of them may have a broken/shifted belt. The tire basically becomes egg-shaped rather than round and can potentially fail. Have them checked ASAP. If you need assistance, consider YourMechanic, as one of our mobile technicians can come to your home to perform these checks and diagnose the issue with your steering for an accurate repair.
